Rezillos at the ABC

Last Thursday the Threads folk were at the ABC filming and photographing The Rezillos playing in front of a huge LED video wall (everyone was worried this would create difficulties, but both Paul and Michael (our film guys) and I loved it - usually we're vying for every available photon).  I wasn't particularly familiar with the band before the gig but, as usual with Threads bands, really enjoyed the show.

And the giant mirrorball photographed from the upstairs bar:

A very Potato Christmas 2011

This year's traditional Potatoes of Night Christmas photo was made slightly more difficult by being down, but we managed nevertheless - particularly as Julie had foreseen this difficulty and provided me with some antlers/antennae in-camera...

I'm forever blowing bubbles

My usual lunch date at Di Maggio's was combined with an emergency photo-shot for the December picture in their Christmas calendar.  As luck would have it I'd just given Morag a loan of my flash-gun, so we had to rely on on-camera flash with a hanky over it (to lessen glare a bit).  However, I managed to get some shots (thanks largely to Alison and some cunningly deployed  bubble mixture).

Matthew and the bubbles

Andrew does something complicated with straws while Matthew receives messages from the Heavens (or possibly spots some more bubbles just out of shot).

I dreamed your dress was made of mirrors

Morag in my sparkly dress for the "underwater" part of Saturday's shoot at Dreghorn Studios.  The real submerged photos will hopefully appear soon, but we both quite liked the way it reflected the light onto the walls like a mirrorball.  It also sounds like rain falling on a roof when you pick it up.  (Title borrowed from Zoey Van Goey).

Adam Stafford

Video of one of Adam Stafford's cunningly bizarre loop pedal songs as previously mentioned - think KT Tunstall, but more exotic...
